Belgian judicial authorities have arrested a Moroccan faith healer following the death of 18-year-old Layla Hachichi.
The woman died as a result of burns. Her body were found in her parents' home three weeks ago.
Lawyer Abderrahim Lahlali says that the faith healer was called in to deal with "psychological problems".
Newspaper reports suggest that the woman was a lesbian.

As far as I know, a big part of Christianity does not believe in possesions, nor in exorcisms, but I guess not everyone feels this way.
Well, yeah, there are different things I guess. You are intitled to believe it's a disorder but at least it should be treated with scientific methods, not arcaic rituals.
On the other hand, that study is a little weird. It basically messes with one's brain so that it can be attracted to people of a different genre. I'm sure they could also rewire an heterosexual's brain in order to be attracted by same-sex people, and yet noone would call it "cure for heterosexuality" nor it would mean that said sexuality is a disorder.

You should read the study a little closer this isnt what they are doing. They are just finding the part of the brain that are affected an then addressing them. Just like they did when they researched any other brain issue like depresions cause and effects.
